Organisation Details

The JEDO Mission is to serve God in justice and peace by defending individual human dignity, promoting solidarity, and fostering the common good, by working to cultivate personal and social responsibility, and to stand with the marginalised and vulnerable to actively safeguard the integrity of all of creation as ecological stewards.  

The JEDO Vision is for a peaceful and just world that remembers that we belong to each other as global citizens; who willingly and co-operatively work for the benefit of all humankind and creation - now and for future generations; with all people of good will.  

At a national level, we are guided and supported on this JEDO journey through the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference (ACBC), the Australian Catholic Social Justice Council (ACSJC), Catholic Earthcare Australia (Ecology), and Caritas Australia (Development). At a state, and local level, our work purpose is inclusive of (but not restricted to): linking with parishioners within the Catholic Archdiocese of Perth, and with many other Catholic agencies, and collaboration with Ecumenical and inter-faith agencies, as well as civic and professional groups concerned with the broad themes of justice and peace. Our call to action includes the principles of Catholic social teaching so we can think globally, but act locally.  

We aim to work collaboratively and co-operatively; with compassion, integrity, mercy and respect; to be discerning through inclusive practices that value diversity and are justice-focused; to work as enablers and facilitators to build the capacity of others working for the common good in relation to social justice issues and peace promotion activities.  

The Justice, Ecology and Development Office (JEDO), replaced the Catholic Social Justice Council (CSJC) at the beginning of 2014.
